An interesting and bold strategy, to do something completely different -- clever re-use of a mature standard for a completely different application than it was designed for -- rather than become just another me-too in ZigBee, BT or whatever. I wish them the best of luck in getting this off the ground.

Frank, I agree. This is really an interesting strategy on the part of Dialog. I am not certain how many others will follow to build momentum behind this...but this definitely feels like a plan worth trying.

Indusrtial Automation and Healthcare automation is in need of this type of technology. If Dialog works with OE to provide innovative value added solution, they will be very successful. I will await new industrial product range with DECT ULE.

When it refers to audio and telphony, DECT has proved to beat Bluetooth, but at the moment, I think reduced levels in power consumption require not only the use of an adequate protocol and short ranges (300m isn´t short for me) but also the semiconductor making experience and knowledge. Few companies out there posses such combination. However, I do see that DECT is a strong contender when talking about not so short ranges. Would like to see the current consumption numbers though.

Reuse an already mature technology provides a leading position in stability and, hopefully, cost. However, what's the other advantage of DECT ULE over Zigbee which is intended for home automation?

Native support for IP address; support for "voice"; the integration of DECT ULE capabilities in Internet access devices (like cable or DSL modems); etc.

zigbee is too complicated, not IP friendly, and their 'profiles' can not co-exist(one device can only be either for home-automation, or metering, etc), etc. it has great marketing skills, but the tech side is lacking a lot.even z-wave is much better.

That's fine, DECT is mature and well tested.
However it is also known as easily hackable. Considering it's something that could be used everywhere at home, I wonder if it's that smart to use such a weak solution (from the privacy point of view)...

Good question. This story was written two years ago. I think we ought to go back to Dialog to find out how things are going...

michigan0 Sang Kim First, 28nm bulk is in volume manufacturing for several years by the major semiconductor companies but not 28nm FDSOI today yet. Why not? Simply because unlike 28nm bulk the LDD(Lightly Doped Drain) to minimize hot carrier generation can't be implemented in 28nm FDSOI. Furthermore, hot carrier reliability becomes worse with scaling, That is the major reason why 28nm FDSOI is not manufacturable today and will not be. Second, how can you suppress the leakage currents from such ultra short 7nm due to the short channel effects? How thin SOI thickness is required to prevent punch-through of un-dopped 7nm FDSOI? Possibly less than 4nm. Depositing such an ultra thin film less then 4nm filum uniformly and reliably over 12" wafers at the manufacturing line is extremely difficult or not even manufacturable. If not manufacturable, the 7nm FDSOI debate is over!Third, what happens when hot carriers are generated near the drain at normal operation of 7nm FDSOI? Electrons go to the positively biased drain with no harm but where the holes to go? The holes can't go to the substrate because of the thin BOX layer. Some holes may become trapped at the BOX layer causing Vt shift. However, the vast majority of holes drift through the the un-dopped SOI channel toward the N+Source,...
